Rumour: Kia evaluating Soul Petrol & EV for India
According to a media report, Kia is considering the Soul hatchback for India. In addition to the petrol version, Kia is also evaluating the Soul EV.
Kia is said to have received a positive feedback from customers about the Soul after it was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The company would look at the Soul or a similar vehicle for the Indian market.
While the introduction of the Soul EV may not be a priority, Kia could consider the petrol version. In the international markets, Kia offers the Soul with two petrol engine options. These include a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine producing 198 BHP and a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated motor with 145 BHP. While the former is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the latter comes with either a 6-speed manual or CVT.
